Promoting Libraries at Breakfast

I was surprised to see, on the back of a cereal box, a full-panel promotion for libraries, including exhortations to use the library for:
  • Reference services
  • Business services
  • Internet access
  • Books-by-mail
  • Interlibrary loan
  • Literacy services
There's a lot of copy promoting the use of the library for kids with a boy (or a girl with a pageboy haircut) behind books and two hip teen girls in front of some stacks. "Consider the library next time you are looking for a place to hang out." (Should we hang out at the abandoned factory? No, let's try the library instead, since ShopRite says so.)

Anyway, the cereal box was a nice surprise for a library fan/librarian like me.

See a bigger (PDF) copy of the box in Google Docs.
